    Making-Of
  • We were over the moon to be approached by Gallery Print, the Berlin based printer specialising in cooperations with designers and artists, to design their 2015 calendar. 
     
    So fancy getting your hands on a free copy? Then be sure to come down to Gallery Print’s ‘End of Summer' party on Friday 29th August at 7pm for food, drinks and dancing whilst a cool selection of DJs spin vinyl on top of the printers! 
     
    To get involved all you have to do is sign up to the guest list by August 25th on gallery-print.de/party
  • About the FontFont Calendar
  • This is no ordinary calendar. Nor is it an ordinary type specimen. It’s both. Elegantly fused into a unique artwork that you can also use for practical purposes.
     
    Every day of the calendar shows a different FontFont® typeface, so you can be inspired daily by discovering something new. The days of the year are each represented as a circular scratch-off info graphic that begin as a full circle and progressively diminish to nothing, illustrating the course of time as a clear visual pattern. To see each typeface specimen simply treat the calendar as an ongoing game. Just scratch off each info graphic circle to reveal the type specimen behind it.
     
    The 365 selected FontFonts cover a wide range of designs and styles, from constructed to spontaneous, from serious to playful. Each typeface is shown using the sample text ‘Rag’ which is the most compact way to showcase the basic characteristics of a type design.
     
    The calendar is a set of posters which you can align next to each other, so you see several months or even the entire year at one glance, making it highly practical for long-term planning. It also features an exquisite cover poster with a compact view of the entire year.
     
    Best of all, the calendar does not become obsolete once 2015 is over. The type specimens remain after all the circles have been scratched off, offering you a timeless overview of all major FontFonts released until 2014.
     
    Time and type wait for no man.
